The European Union asked the Taliban to suspend punishment in public

The European Union Parliament has approved a resolution that calls for the suspension of public executions and the discriminatory sentences of the Taliban. The resolution calls on the Taliban to end violence against women, gender apartheid and “brutal” punishments.

The European Union supports the civil society of Afghanistan in the request of the International Criminal Court to investigate the crimes of the Taliban. They say that the Taliban continues to punish “inhuman” citizens regardless of the wishes of the international community. More than 450 people were flogged in public and tried in court.

It is worth mentioning that women and girls are deprived of the right to education, work, commuting and other personal and civil liberties, and according to experts, this has caused an increase in forced, underage and child marriages.

At the same time, the human rights organizations of the United Nations, which have documented the widespread violation of human rights by the Taliban, and dozens of women’s protest movements have called for the officialization of gender apartheid in Afghanistan.
